KENNESAW, Ga. (AP) - Kennesaw State University officials say they’re considering the idea of displaying artwork that school officials ordered removed from the opening of a new museum on campus.

The artwork included words from a 19th-century letter by Georgia novelist Corra Harris about the lynching of a black man near Newnan.

School officials say they’ve heard from people who were disappointed and object to the university’s decision to remove the piece from an exhibit at the university’s new Zuckerman Museum of Art, which opened this month. KSU said at the time that the rejected artwork wasn’t suitable for the museum opening.

KSU said in a statement this week that school officials have been talking with the artist, Ruth Stanford, and are considering re-instating the piece in the museum with “related programming.”
